The UK based developer behind multi-award winning free-to-play MMO RuneScape, Jagex, today announced the highly anticipated launch of its new multiplayer FPS game on Steam, Block N Load. To celebrate the launch of their new title Jagex announced an exciting special event to take place over the weekend, inviting the Steam community to explore the features of Block N Load for free. Beginning today players can immediately jump into the Block N Load action as they construct, defend, attack and destroy their way to victory in explosive 5v5 multiplayer action

Block N Load combines the creative freedom of today’s most popular voxel-based games with the precision and ability of the fast and furious shoot ‘en up genre. Customize your hero, choose your load-out of blocks and prepare for an explosive PvP experience in highly-destructible arenas and varied game modes.

“We’ve tried to do something different with Block N Load. We wanted to make a game where building is as important as bullets, where smarts are as important as skills, and where players could contribute to their team in their way. We can’t wait to see the creativity and invention of those that play Block N Load now that it’s live. Today’s launch is only the beginning. We have a player first mentality, and we look forward to an exciting journey with the players as the game evolves.”David Solari, Vice President of Block N Load

Block N Load is now available to purchase on the Steam store and will be available at a 15% discounted price for its entire first week of launch.
